    X99 on mITX: ASRock X99E-itx/ac

    Yeah. Opps I should have done better research. A quick trip to Microcenter to pick up some different RAM and all is well. Glad I hadn't stopped at UPS prior to reading the message above. Two 35mm thick AIOs is a tight squeeze but everything is working great.

    X99 on mITX: ASRock X99E-itx/ac

    Board seems to be DOA. I spent hours yesterday and today troubleshooting. I guess it will be a little bit longer before my system will be up and running.

    NCASE M1: a crowdfunded Mini-ITX case (updates in first post)

    For the Ncase m1, without having to mod anything I believe the adapter will only work with boards that have the m.2 slot laid flat on the front and there is only currently one motherboard that offers that. That board is the Asrock x99-eitx.

    One case cleared customs and has left LA. The other case hasn't cleared customs yet. I guess they will arrive on separate days.

    NCASE M1: a crowdfunded Mini-ITX case (updates in first post)

    It looks like the dual Fury X card will perform nicely with that Silverstone SFX 700. Cross Fired Fury X's with a 3960x had a total system output of just under 600watts during peak gaming load according to PCPER. Definately leaves the door open for a M1 build with X99 and Fury X2, just leaves...

    Thanks. Now I know my plans will work without modification. Now that I know my media server will work in the M1. I just have to play the waiting game to see if the Silverstone 700watt SFX-L will successfully power a dual Fury card. Hopefully those two are launched around the same time.

    To answer your question, yes you can mount HDDs in the bottom. Somewhere in this thread there is a picture of a yellow themed M1. It has two WD Black 4TB drives in a bracket mounted in the bottom with a short video card. Edit: I completly missed you wanted to mount four in the bottom. It looks...

    AMD Project Quantum

    The prototype they were showing uses a modified/custom Z97 mitx board and an Intel CPU.

    Now this could be big: R9 Nano

    Probably to save space.

    Now this could be big: R9 Nano

    It uses a dual fiji card. This is why the image of the dual fiji card is floating around. AMD also more or less confirmed that the dual fiji card in Project Quantum is 9" long. Hopefully the retail version is the same.

    NCASE M1: a crowdfunded Mini-ITX case (updates in first post)

    I just wonder what the PSU requirement of the dual Fury card will be. People are driving 295x2's with ~800watt psus. Maybe it will be possible to run the dual Fury card with that 700watt SFX-L. There are bare card shots of it floating around. The dual Fury card is much shorter than the 295x2...

    Kimera Industries Cerberus: The 18L, mATX, USA-made enclosure

    With a 40 lane processor it most likely is. I see no reason why they'd change positives from the Micro 1 when they are releasing the Micro 2 to fix negatives of the Micro 1.

    Not sure if it has been mentioned in this thread but he Evga X99 Micro 2 that is being released in July has a proper Ultra M.2 slot. Other additions are USB 3.1 with 1 USB C port.

    Skylake-Based Z170 Gaming Mini ITX Motherboard

    M.2 is for blade type ssds now and in the future. U.2 is for highend 2.5" ssds now and in the future. Right now the only real consumer option for u.2 is m.2 to u.2 adapters.

    Skylake-Based Z170 Gaming Mini ITX Motherboard

    The port that has basically made sata express still born. It was previously known as SFF8639. It's the port that the Intel 750 2.5" ssd requires. There are a few m.2 to u.2 adapters. Pretty much all motherboard manufactures are making them. The question is when will we see them on mainstream...

    DAN A4-SFX: The smallest gaming case in the world

    Regular msata or m.2 drives which do not get very warm would most likely work. On the other hand, the Samsung XP941 or SM951 probably would not work as they get super toasty without proper airflow.

    Silverstone SX700-LPT 700W Platinum SFX-L

    4k gaming requires dual gpus for decent results. A 700watt PSU will theoretically allow for dual GPU graphic cards to be used in mitx cases. Fiji is said to be much more energy efficient. If Fiji is as efficient as being claimed, a 700watt psu would be more than enough to drive a high end cpu...

    Silverstone SX700-LPT 700W Platinum SFX-L

    If AMD has improved efficiency with Fiji, it is quite possible the 395x2 or whatever dual fiji will be called could be used in a M1 with this PSU and dual 120mm radiators(one for cpu and one for the 395x2).

    NCASE M1: a crowdfunded Mini-ITX case (updates in first post)

    IIRC any longer graphics card creates a tight fit with any SFX-L PSUs. I believe you have space if you use a pcie extender cable to move the graphics card down a slot. Others can correct me if I am wrong. My Node 304 build might turn into a Ncase M1 v.4 build if whatever the Dual Fiji card can...

    X99 on mITX: ASRock X99E-itx/ac

    That's odd. They responded to my request the same day and I sent the money via PayPal and it was shipped the next day. I guess they kind of got tired of people emailing about the kit so they put it up on their eBay store.

    Not all 770s with blowers use the Titan cooler. The EVGA, there was atleast one(that is apparently are no longer offered) that didn't.

    Shipping by the end of August isn't going to happen and hasn't been in the timeframe for awhile now. We can hope by the end of Sept but as the days pass it could be Oct or later before people actually have the case in their hands. It's better for everything to be done right than rushed.

    The reference 780 uses the reference Titan cooler and its pretty damn good in regards to noise and cooling. The reference 680 cooler is used on most blower style 770s. Its not as good as the titan cooler but its no where near as bad as the leafblowers on any AMD card, which most people think of...
